§ 41. Mr. Henderson Stewart
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the petition of the Herring Trade Association to have herring barrels and barrel-making materials exempted from compulsory insurance under the War Risks Insurance Act; and whether in view of the peculiar circumstances of the herring trade, he is prepared to make the desired concession?
§ Mr. Stanley
I have received the petition of the Herring Trade Association to which my hon. Friend refers and I am giving it urgent consideration.
